High School Girl In Hot Water For "Back That Ass Up" Science Joke In Her Yearbook Quote


GawkerThe senior class vice-president of a high school in Georgia may be banned from her graduation ceremony for using the periodic elements to spell out “Back that ass up” in her yearbook quote. Paris Gray, a student at Mundy’s Mill High School in Clayton County, Ga., used the following quote in her yearbook: “When the going gets tough just remember to Barium, Carbon, Potassium, Thorium, Astatine, Arsenic, Sulfur, Uranium, Phosphorus.” For those of you who can’t remember the periodic elements: When spelled out, the full quote reads, “When the going gets tough, just remember to back that ass up.” The quote is probably a reference to Juvenile’s 1999 hit, “Back That Ass Up,” though Gray insists it had an inspirational meaning. “Basically, it was me just saying start all over again,” Gray told WSB. “You have to go back and start all over.” Gray’s mother, Zarinah Woods, seems to be taking the controversy in stride. “My first reaction was, you are such a nerd,” she said. 

Talk nerdy to me girl! Its not quite as good as the Asian chick dropping “Fuck Bitches, Get Money,” but as far as nerd humor this is right up there at the top of the list. Love Paris’ excuse that its inspirational. “You have to go back and start all over.” Yea, sure thing babe. It definitely doesn’t mean “If you put all your eggs in this science basket and it doesn’t work out, you can always shake that ass.” If you don’t end up being a scientist you can always go be a big thick plumber chick, and a Hummer chick. Beat the dick like a motherfuckin drummer chick.
